I'm really liking this... This came in a boxed set I bought at Kohl's, I really bought the set for a blush and highlighter that were in the box, but ended up loving this powder foundation! I have mostly been using it over a light coverage BB cream, applying with a big fluffy brush, and it's really pretty.. It has some illumination to it, and does exactly what the name says "Balance and Brighten"... I'm pretty sure I would repurchase this on its own in the future❣💋💄

This is the type of product that could be amazing - if it’s the type of product you are looking for.

I enjoy full coverage foundations, while I consider this one light. The finish reminded me of a BB cream and wasn’t cakey when applied by itself. It evened out my skin, but I still saw a lot of imperfections I would have preferred covered and only lasted on my skin (combo leaning towards oily) a few hours.

Since I don’t like light coverage foundations I tried to use this as a setting powder over my liquid foundation. I thought maybe this would add a little extra coverage or keep my makeup looking fresher longer and I heard of other people using it the same way. Unfortunately, it just gave me cake face that got worse as the day progressed. I didn’t try that again! I think this technique could possibly work better for people who are more on the dry side.

The reason I gave it three stars is because I can see how this could be a great product for someone who is looking for what it can offer. I can’t give it 1 star just because it didn’t work for the makeup style I like or because I attempted to pile this on to another foundation. I think if you are into BB creams and very natural makeup this would work great to even out skin tones. It also wears off gracefully after a few hours, so the transition from wearing makeup to not isn’t that obvious (since it’s already a very subtle look). Not a bad product by any means, just not what I was looking for. Honestly, I think this is the type of product my mom would rate 5 stars!

I received this and In a kit from Ulta and I absolutely love it. The application feel is extraordinary. I would've given it five socks but I do you have to put more than two applications on to get the cover I want but it but it is very beautiful. That's just me... It came with the chandelier blush which I absolutely adore. Go Laura!!!!

I'm NC 30 in Mac (W4 in L'Oréal) and purchased "Light" for $36 at Ulta. Initially, it matched my skin very well, but by the 3rd use, the "swirls" in the powder became more beige/pink. Now it is too dark for me and almost muddy looking on my yellow-toned skin. I can't find my receipt so I'll just finish this as a light setting powder or something. Maybe it will look less muddy after I get a tan and am NC 35. I'm disappointed because this goes on very smooth and provides medium, natural looking coverage, but I can't find my shade.

this is a really good product, i got it around the time ulta had this and the bronzer in a set. i like to use this to “bake” and sweep it away. i also like to use this to set my eyeshadow primers before applying eyeliner or eyeshadow bc i have super oily eyelids (summertime) this product runs deeper in color than the pan shows so i suggest getting it in lighter shades. the packaging does get messy, its matte black and the powder gets all over it

I love, love, love this foundation. It blends nicely and wears well. It is pricey, but will continue to buy because it is amazing.

I tried the mini size version of this as I was not sure I would like it. This was very natural looking and the medium shade was perfect for my skin tone. I did not need to use primer or setting spray with this, the coverage was not too heavy or too sheer; it looked like I was not wearing any foundation at all. I was also able to blend cream blushes on top of it. The surface texture was very smooth and non-powdery. Way better than bareminerals foundation.

I'm 52. With that said, this product (I use it in the Medium shade) has convinced me to stop wearing liquid foundation and/or BB creams. I don't need it with this baked foundation. It covers everything it needs to. I do use concealer for my dark circles though. It doesn't look cakey at all on me. I have combo skin. I get oily in my t-zone so I just use a little Rimmel Stay Matte primer in those areas. It doesn't oxidize on me like some have said it does on them. Gives me a youthful glow I just love. I also wear the baked bronze n brighten in the medium shade on top of it and the blush n brighten in pink buttercream. My 52-year-old skin looks awesome when I'm done. These baked products don't settle into fine lines either. I end it all with a good setting spray and it seals the deal. This stuff doesn't budge the entire day. I could actually give away my entire collection of liquid foundations, and other blushes and not blink twice. I have finally found my holy grail.
